Phi Delta Theta Wins Interfraternal Giving Tuesday Challenge

In the spirit of generosity and community, organizations worldwide participated in Giving Tuesday, a global initiative encouraging philanthropy and charitable giving. Phi Delta Theta members rallied to compete this year in the Interfraternal Giving Tuesday Competition, pursuing the win and bringing in over $248,000 for the Phi Delta Theta Foundation in one day.

The Interfraternal Giving Tuesday Challenge is a friendly competition between fraternity foundations to see which organization can rally the most engagement and raise the most for its foundation. For the first time, Phi Delta Theta accepted the challenge. In twelve hours, Phi Delta Theta brothers raised an outstanding $248,317.34, surpassing our initial goal of $150,000. Our efforts outshone other prominent fraternities, including PIKE, Sigma Chi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Alpha Gamma Rho, Phi Psi, Kappa Delta Rho, and Theta Chi.

This achievement is not just a victory for Phi Delta Theta; it’s a win for the entire fraternity community, as the Giving Tuesday Challenge raised over $1 million to support students across various fraternities. The dollars raised during this campaign will help Phi Delta Theta members, allowing the Phi Delta Theta Foundation to continue meeting its mission of giving out $1 million a year in student grants and scholarships.

A victory like the one we experienced on Giving Tuesday embodies our 2030 vision —  to be recognized as North America’s premier fraternal leadership development society. Our brotherhood actively acknowledges this vision and showcases its commitment to this status through philanthropy. Thank you for transmitting the Fraternity greater than it was to you, paving the way for the future of Phi Delta Theta.
